I got a Yamaha CRD 102 about two weeks ago. I have not been able to
use it yet because I cant get my Adaptec AHA2840 VLB Card to work.
The video graphics go bad on me when I install this card. In DOS text
the colors change but I can normally still read the text. In windows
the graphics is so jumbled that nothing is readable. If I take out my
IDE card then this doesnt happen. I tried a different IDE card with
no difference. I tried all the different settings on the Adaptec 2840
card with the jumpers with no luck. Just got a new Motherboard, 486
Deep Green with 3 VESA Master slots. My old mb was very similar to
this one except older BIOS and less a few other features. This
manual on this board said it had 2 Master/ 3 Slave VESA slots. With
the new board I have the Cyrix 5x86 CPU and the old board has the DX/2
66. I had similar problems with the old board except one time I had
it where the graphics was OK but the system didnt recognize the SCSI
card. The two IDE cards are VLB type, one is a Promise 2300. Help by
anybody would be appreciated.
